Company bus drivers in India
A weird underground economy is developing in India. Buses of IT companies returning at nights often take people from the bus stops. People who are tired after a day's work also jump at such buses as these buses are clean and not overcrowded. The drivers are also generous and do not usually charge the full fare (eg May just take 5 bucks instead of the regular 7 by State buses). And no one is complaining! The bus drivers get to make a neat sum which I am sure must be rivaling their company salaries. Its amazing to see how the economy drives in strange ways. One more strange chapter on the dark roads of India.
